“The despotic tendencies inherent in mortal mind and always germinating in new forms of tyranny, must be rooted out through the action of the divine Mind.” (Science and Health, page 225)
The mortal mind, that mind opposed to God, to infinite Spirit, is always attempting to take control of things. This material view of things is tyrannical; it is a claim to power which is abused, oppressive, and arbitrary. It is a belief in power that is without reasonable righteousness and benevolence.
Mortal mind will continue to search out ways in which to wrest power from God, good, Love. It will drum up new delusions to parade as reality and authority. As spiritual vision grows and expands, the material tricks may seem to get more subtle and dangerous. We must be alert to these temptations to accept and prop up a leader who is not divine Truth and Love.
How can we win back our freedom, elect the right government that is kind and lawful and loving? We must get rid of the tyrants, root out the beliefs in a power opposed to God, and live in peace and harmony. It is not something we can do humanly, but it can and must be done through the action of Mind. By yielding to the true Principle, to that Mind that is revealing lies through the light of Truth, we can uncover the usurpers to power and at the same time see their powerlessness.
Matter’s cruel tricks can’t change our citizenship. We are free men and women, unconditionally, lawfully, immediately and always.
